BREAKTHROUGH: New Compound Shows Anti-Seizure, Anti-inflammatory effects for TBI Treatment

Summary of article: A new compound containing Deuterium called “C-10068” is displaying extremely positive results as a treatment for Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). When testing brain trauma response on lab animals (rats), researchers found that doses of C-10068 could reduce post-injury seizures, both convulsant and non-convulsant.

Researchers discover new cause to explain development of temporal lobe epilepsy

Epilepsy is a very prevalent neurological disorder. Approximately one-third of patients are resistant to currently available therapies. A team of researchers under the guidance of the Institute of Cellular Neurosciences at the University of Bonn has discovered a new cause to explain the development of temporal lobe epilepsy: At an early stage, astrocytes are uncoupled […]
